Cynthia & Len’s Westin Philadelphia Wedding is a beautiful love story! The story about how the pharmacist and lawyer fell in love. However, after their first date at the Heritage Bar in Philadelphia, they were inseparable. They had a wedding day to remember too!
Philadelphia Westin Hotel wedding morning preps
They first both got ready at the Westin Hotel in Philadelphia, PA. The groomsmen and bridesmaids were fantastic and were everything you would want from your closest friends and family. They were helpful, fun, and light-hearted. The rooms are quite spacious and modern at the Westin.
Philadelphia Westin Hotel wedding first look
We planned their first look at a beautiful spot very close to the front entrance of the Westin. For the couple’s first look, we hide and do not interact at all in the moment. The tear coming from Len’s eyes spoke a thousand words…
Bride and groom Portraits in Old City Philadelphia
For their bridal party and couple photographs, we went to Old City and photographed at the Merchant Exchange Building, First National Bank, and behind the bank with all the beautiful greenery. They finished up with some fun city hall Broadstreet portraits. But then we got stuck behind a horde of teenage zombies all dressed the same, going to see Beiber play in the Made in American festival. Philly was so crazy this day with people walking around everything in Center City.
Westin Hotel Philadelphia Wedding Ceremony
After changing into her traditional Chinese dress, Cynthia was ready for the Tea Ceremony with all their family at the Westin. She then changed for a third time into her traditional western wedding dress for her Westin Hotel wedding ceremony. The room is gorgeous with elegant chandeliers, and they hold the cocktail hour just outside, and the reception is a few doors down.
Westin Philadelphia wedding reception
The Westin Philadelphia wedding reception ballroom is elegant and sophisticated with soft lighting incredible aura of luxury. The staff is also super friendly and easy to work with, not only the couple and guests but also the vendors.
In conclusion, after some emotional bride/groom and parent dances, they partied the night on the dance floor. What an exceptional wedding! I was so happy to be a part of it and deliver a beautiful album for them to relive their wedding day.
